Could This Change Your Life?

My favorite vantage point in all of Walt Disney World

Disney Observation Deck
Gave John the email from York Chamber of Commerce.


Disney's Magic Kingdom from Contemporary Resort
About 730am yesterday.


Disney's Grand Floridian Resort from Contemporary Resort

John Faurote and Jeff Noel at California Grill
John seemed pleasantly surprised by our early morning excursion to the “Top of The World”.


My favorite vantage point in all of Walt Disney World is on top of Disney’s Contemporary Resort.

This is saying something because i’ve had the privilege of being in some amazing Disney Vantage points, including the highest room in Cinderella Castle.

So it was very intentional to take John there to have him experience our first official commitment to engage in a one-day “Jeff Noel Community Program”.

Hoping he never forgets reading those words on that email, and never forgets believing all his hard work and trust in a positive outcome will pay off.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.


Emotion Trumps Everything

The painful paradox of profit

Disney Customer Service Speaker
Never did mention i’m an author during last weeks leadership keynote speech.


Began the rough draft yesterday to describe concisely what hiring me as a business advisor would look like.

Have a client who wants transformation and world class consistency and operational excellence.

Same client also wants this as cheaply as possible.

She’s been taught to ruthlessly control costs.

Profit is the goal for her, not the reward.

One Question A Day?

Will the 7th and 8th graders remember this lunch?

Will the 7th and 8th graders remember this lunch?


Will the 7th and 8th graders remember this lunch?

Doesn’t matter. That’s not why it was offered.

Sometimes we simply do things because it brings us joy, even if it costs us.

No really

Even if we choose not to decide, we still have made a choice

One side of double sided business card. The black edges are not part of the card.


Feeling like a million bucks comes from making decisions. However, decisions do not guarantee success.

Decisions only guarantee learning.

Learning is worth the investment.

Feeling amazing knowing that the first set of official business cards are on the way.

Anyone Else Think Like This?

Guess which one Walt Disney thought it was

Leadership is the silver bullet. While it’s common to have great business managers leading a team to stellar financial results, the long term toll this effort requires needs to come into question at some point.

Bottomline, the difference between burnout and turnover versus sustainability and loyalty is simply this:

Profit is either the goal or the reward.

Great leaders see it as the reward.

You reach a point where you no longer work for money. – Walt Disney
